From bold Chardonnays to fragrant Sauvignon Blancs, the world of White Wine is certainly a diverse one. These are wines commonly produced from green grapes, which are pressed to release a clear juice that can then ferment into a bright white wine. Some are pale and light, others deep and golden, but all are delicious and enjoy popularity across the world. There are even specific regions that are especially famous for their white wines, such as Chablis in Burgundy and the Mosel in Germany. With hundreds of white grape varieties grown today, there is certainly something for everyone when it comes to White Wine.
